The Story of a Marriage

London: J.M. Dent and Co., 1895. J.A. Symington. Hardcover. Scarce. A nice association copy, inscribed by the author: "Trix Fleming from her affectionate L. B. November 1900." Louisa Baldwin was one of the four MacDonald sisters, all of whom married notable men. Louisa married industrialist Alfred Baldwin and was the mother of prime minister Stanley Baldwin; Alice, the mother of Rudyard Kipling and Alice "Trix" MacDonald Kipling, married the sculptor Lockwood Kipling; Agnes married artist Edward Poynter; and Georgiana married Edward Burne-Jones. The recipient of this book "Trix" Kipling, later Fleming, was Rudyard's sister and Louisa's niece. This is one of many titles of fiction and poetry written by Louisa, many published with Mrs. Alfred Baldwin as the author. Bound in publisher's dark blue cloth with gilt title and author to spine. Bumped, rubbed, light stains, and slightly cocked. Interior pages are very good with typical offsetting to free endpapers. With six illustrations by J. A. Symington.
